Coke Cake

The case of the disappearing coca cola cake was solved this week when a puzzled home school mom called to ask how she ended up with my cake pan!


Since the cake was such a big hit the first time we made it, Dagmar made another this week while some friends were visiting.

It disappearing again, but this time I watched it go- piece by moist and delicious piece!

Coca Cola Cake

Combine 1/2 cup margarine, 1/2 cup shortening, 3 tablespoons baking cocoa, 1 cup coca cola and 1 1/2 cup mini marshmallows in small saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and pour over 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups of flour. Stir well.

Add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of buttermilk, and 1 teaspoon of soda. Mix well.

Pour into a greased 9 x 13 inch cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan.

Frost with Coca Cola frosting.

Coca Cola Frosting

Combine 1/2 cup margarine, 3 tablespoons baking cocoa, and 6 tablespoons of coca cola in saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Add 16 ounces of powdered sugar and beat till smooth.

Spread on cooled cake.

Keep an eye on the finished cake- now you see it- now you don’t!

One thought on “Coke Cake

  1. I was wondering if this Coke could be diet or cherry or (heaven forbid) can you use Pepsi? Is it versatile enough to substitute RC cola. Has anyone dared to try Root Beer? or Dr. Pepper? Just wondering….we’re all out of coca cola here. Got lots of ginger ale though. Would that work? Hmmmmmm.
